Rackets World Eliminator Announcement 2019

10 Apr 2019

Eliminator scheduled for May 2019

We are pleased to announce the arrangements for the upcoming World Rackets Singles Eliminator.

The current World Singles Champion, James Stout, has decided not to defend his world title again having held it for the last 11 years. James is one of the greatest players our game has seen and it has been a privilege to watch him play. A full tribute to James’ achievements and contribution to the singles game will published by NARA and the T&RA in due course.

James Stout vacating his title means that we now have an Eliminator match to determine who plays Tom Billings in the Championship Match this Autumn. The Eliminator is being played between Alex Duncliffe-Vines and Will Hopton who are the third and fourth ranked players in the World Championship points ranking.

The Eliminator will be played over two legs in the UK as follows:

First leg: Queen's Club Wednesday 22nd May at 1830

Second leg: Manchester RTC Saturday 25th May at 1100

The Eliminator will be played over two best of seven game legs. The player winning the Eliminator Match is the player who wins the most games. If the games are level after two Legs the player with the most points wins the Match and wins the right to play in the World Championship Match.
